Fall 2012; Celebrating the latest issue with a Giveaway!!

Cover art and photo by Alice Wingerden

Welcome back to my blog. Glad to have you come by as I celebrate another gorgeous release of Creating Vintage Charm for Fall 2012. As you may have read above, its another issue filled to the brim with talented women and gorgeous collections and creations. 

Once again, my sincere thanks goes out to all who contributed in this issue.

If you haven't yet purchased your copy, you can go here 
and you will get yours in the mail.


And now for the fabulous giveaway...

One of our features in this current issue is Nina Hartmann and her book VintagebyNINA. Her book is filled with pictures of her gorgeous and rare finds, brought to her home in Sweden from her hunting trips to France.

She collaborates with photographer Maria-Isabel Hansson to showcase her pretties in one gorgeous book. 

Looking through her book, page after page, is like stepping in a time machine and going way back to such romantic eras.

What an amazing collection of boots found by Nina. Be still my heart!!.....*sigh

These images are just a tiny sample of the beauty spread throughout the book.


And you may win the chance to flip through her book and see for yourself.
I have two SIGNED copies of Nina's books, VintagebyNINA to giveaway.
Books are in Swedish, though she has very recently published the translated version.
But I am sure you will enjoy them none-the-less. 

So to win a copy, all you have to do is leave a comment to this post INCLUDING your email address where I can contact you (a must). Each comment is considered as an entry.
For extra chances to win, share or post about this giveaway on your blog, twitter and/or facebook and for each network you share this post on, come back and leave another comment/entry. 

Giveaway closing date is November 10th. Two winners will be picked out by a random number generator shortly after and notified via email.

Feel free to use this poster to share about this giveaway ;)

Until then...
